The Bellflower has a shuttle, Can't Stop The Serenity 2008, Summer Glau and Joss has a new web project ... Oh heck, it's a general news round-up!

Just a very quick round-up and I hope that you all are not making yourselves sick on those chocolate Easter eggs ...

As many of you will know, Andrew and Wendy interviewed MJ and many of the people involved with the Aussie fan film, The Bellflower, prior to Christmas 2007, the good news is that work continues to progress and The Bellflower has a shuttle! I think you'll all agree that it looks fantastic and it just whets the appetite for the eventual finished film. Please visit their website for progress details and maybe you, too, can get involved.

The organizing for Can't Stop The Serenity/Equality Now charity screenings 2008 continue to gather pace. A number of screenings are already in the pipeline, but, of course, there's always room for more. Visit the website,, for details on current screenings, and again, details of how to get involved. If you can't see a screening listed for your country or city, please don't wait for someone to do it for you - be the one to do it.

Summer Glau has had to cancel her forthcoming appearance at "Serenity: Complete" in London next month. Sean Harry has stated on the Starfury message boards that he's trying to replace her with a fellow "Firefly" cast member but availability is proving difficult. Sending A Wave would like to keep suggesting Sean Maher ... The good news is that both Adam Baldwin and Alan Tudyk have confirmed their availability.

In the words of Joss Whedon, "the bag is catless ..." A recent interview with Neil Patrick Harris has revealed that Joss has once again unleashed his inner-Sondheim and has been working on a musical with his brother amongst others for the internet which will be released in 3 10 minute webisodes. "Dr Horrible's Sing-a-Long Blog" will be the heart-warming story of "a low-rent super-villan, the hero who keeps beating him up, and the cute girl from the laundromat he's too shy to talk to." Neil Patrick Harris is playing "Dr Horrible", our very own Nathan Fillion is "Capt Hammer" and they are joined by Felicity Day as "Penny" along with a supporting cast promised to be "dozens". No date has yet been set for "Dr Horrible's" unveiling but this is definitely going to be something to see.

I do hope you all have been watching "Mad Men" on both BBCs 2 and 4 with Christina Hendricks. "The Sarah Connor Chronicles" is nearing the pre-WGA strike episodes on Virgin 1 and the channel have been airing a trailer for "Chuck" which they will be screening shortly. "Desperate Housewives" with Nathan Fillion joining the cast returns to E4 on 28 March.
